RICHMOND, Calif. — A Richmond police officer shot and killed a shooting suspect Monday night, authorities said.

The officer-involved shooting happened at about 8 p.m. on the 300 block of 6th Street near Nevin Park. Moments earlier, the officer was on patrol when shots rang out near 7th Street and Nevin Avenue.

The officer saw a man running from the shooting scene and chased him on foot, said Richmond police Lt. Shawn Pickett. The man then ran into the front yard of a home on 6th Street and was blocked by a tall fence, Pickett said.
